Update regarding Covid -19Posted 2020-03-31
As a result of Covid -19, the market demand for several of our product types has increased significantly. A lot of our closures are used for society’s critical products right now, and we want to try to help as broadly as possible. Therefore, we have for some time increased both the planned occupancy in the machinery park and the manpower in our production. However, this is no longer enough to meet the current demand.
In order to meet the need that has now arisen, we need to make some more drastic decisions. One of the decisions is to limit the number of color options on critical products. Color changes take time, in some cases several hours, from the number of hours available in our equipment. These are hours that we can instead use to supply our customers with products.
Another decision is that in some cases we will limit the size of orders. This is in order not to lock capacity for a few customers, but instead be able to satisfy more customers who produce socially critical products. This in turn means that the lead times for the total demanded volume from some customers will be longer.
As you also know, the SEK has weakened significantly in recent weeks, which means that raw materials have become more expensive. Because of this, we are forced to raise prices for some of our products.
For many of you this will have minimal significance, but for some of you it will have a negative impact and we regret this! However, we hope for your understanding and that you, just like us, see the total benefit we can do and that together we do what is best for society in the situation we all find ourselves in.
